Yesterday Bomber Bradbury blogged at Tumeke:
Take Auckland as an example, 35% of households in Mangere and other south Auckland electorate’s have landlines, 50% in Mt Albert and other isthmus electorates have landlines, close to 80% in most North Shore electorates have landlines. A decade ago those differences were less than 10% and all electorates had the majority of people on listed landlines, now they don’t and you can easily see by that breakdown in Auckland alone how biased these cheap brainfart telephone polls can be.
There is no reference for these figures. Whale Oil responded quoting the latest census statistics:
But if you look at some real facts, not just the one pulled out of his rectum you find:
Mangere: 76% of households have landlines
Mt Albert: 89% of households have landlines
North Shore: 94% of households have landlines
If you go through all of the Auckland seats, you can’t find a single one that even remotely matches Bombers figures. So Bomber is saying (I suspect he invented the figures from his rather large and expanding arse) than since the 2006 census, 40% of Households in Mangere have given up their landline and 39% of those in Mt Albert have also given up their phone lines.
Bomber doesn’t do his tenuous grip on reality any good by spouting totally made up figures. He should retract his lies and apologise.
Bomber then posted again, just repeating his numbers, without any reference on which they are based.
So Whale has responded with this challenge:
I issue a challenge to Bomber then, that if he can prove his numbers, categorically, then I will donate the equivalent of a 5 year membership to the NRA to the Mana Party. But if he can’t produce any proof of his assertions then he has to join the NRA for 5 years.
I bet he isn’t man enough to accept this challenge.
Sounds fair to me.Tags: Bomber Bradbury, Whale Oil
